We're delighted to welcome back multiple Monotonik releaser Planet Boelex, who's provided us with an awesome 60+ minute live set, featuring all self-composed Boelex material (much of it new!) recorded at the recent Virus Festival in Lithuania. Boelex, whose tracks have also appeared on Kahvi and Ogredung in recent years, has a beautifully layered pure idm sound, and the mix showcases the downtempo, chilled nature of his sound briefly, starting out with 'Forever And Always' and moving on through...
We've known of Finnish idm artist Tweeter for several years, stemming from his association with former Monotonik artist Substance's .MOD label Voodoo, and have previously been delighted to release his gloriously smooth electronic stylings on the label. Now, the notoriously painstaking artist formerly known as Tweeter is called Planet Boelex (actually the name of his last release on Monotonik), and he makes a triumphant return to us with the 'Sinking In The Soup EP'. So, we start this particular... ( 2 reviews ) Topic: Electronic
“Many musicians defy musical convention. Very few can transport the listener beyond established boundaries without leaving them feeling lost. For six years, Planet Boelex has been creating music that is quite simply out of this world. So, it’s playfully fitting that ‘Raja’, this much anticipated EP from the Finnish musician, is a title that translates as ‘boundary’ or ‘limits’. Over five elegant, entrancing tracks, ‘Raja’ has the capacity to transport you high above the... ( 2 reviews ) Topics: ambient, electronica, chillout
“Exist marks the return to this world of the Finnish electronic musician, Planet Boelex. His decision to disappear from the scene following the acclaimed 2010 release, Raja, served to dismay and perplex. Artists with integrity tend to retire when they have nothing more to say, and yet here was one consistently pushing at frontiers. Perhaps his reasons should remain unexplained. This way, we can submit to these six new tracks as if they’ve just floated in from some other realm. From the... Topics: ambient, downtempo, electronica
A refined meeting between eccentric perfection and vibrating rhythms has always distinguished Planet Boelex's works amidst the releases in the catalogue of any label really; discrete hints, beats like opaque diamonds set in sweet and inspiring harmonies. A track like a hidden secret, pulsating, enterprising, but perfectly structured IDM, drawn as a sensual figure provided with an enwrapping sensuality. Planet Boelex is lovable, for his apparent semplicity, for his crystal-like grooves, for the... Topic: IDM
We're delighted to present a second EP from Finnish artist Planet Boelex, following his first release for Monotonik in the form of the 'Sinking In The Soup EP'. Boelex is also known as long-time .MOD artist Tweeter, a noted alumni of early labels such as Voodoo, and continues to delight allcomers with his beautifully composed, wonderfully melodic idm sound - oddly retro, but somehow still relevant. The 'Second Thoughts EP' starts with the slow build of 'Shower Curtain', all shimmering melody... ( 7 reviews )
Planet Boelex is already known for his incredibly successful releases on Monotonik, and Ogredung already had the pleasant chance to host him with the monster hit 'No Business Like' (078), which met the favours of hundreds of fortunate electronic heads worldspread. "Never change" sounds kind and charming, yet intriguing, a voice who promises that would take care of you, and that little later for you would open up new worlds, unroll an endless succession of magnificent possibilities....

The days are slowly becoming shorter, the leaves on the trees begin to change their colour, the weather is getting colder, the autumn is approaching. We welcome you to the world of Soft Phase netlabel with our first release, which is a collaboration between two northern artists, Planet Boelex and Lisa’s antenna. The former you might know from the past releases on Monotonik and Kahvi Collective, and we’d suspect you might learn something about Lisa while listening to these songs. Enter...
